BBC Two quiz show 'Mock The Week' is to return for a 12th series made up of six episodes next month

'Mock The Week' is returning for a 12th series.

The topical quiz show is to make a comeback with six episodes later this year, starting on June 13, which will see Chris Addison, Hugh Dennis and Andy Parsons return to the panel with Dara O'Briain back in the presenter's chair.

The 'Mock The Week' Twitter account stated: "Remember, our next new series begins on Thurs 13th June - that's just 25 days time! Line-ups TBC ASAP (sic)"

With the new series comes a new location as the programme - which will be filmed entirely in HD for the first time - is moving from BBC Television Centre in Shepherd's Bush to the London Studios on South Bank alongside the River Thames.

A BBC press release has hinted about what fans can expect from the new season, stating: "There'll be the traditional array of hilarious games, running jokes and topical barbs to ensure that 'Mock the Week' will be as much a part of the summer of '13 as that annoyingly catchy song by Daft Punk and people saying, 'I miss the Olympics'."

Milton Jones, Ed Byrne, Miles Jupp, Katherine Ryan, Chris Ramsey and Josh Widdicombe will all appear as guests on the forthcoming series.

An excited producer joked: "2013 is going to be an amazing summer: there'll be a royal baby to celebrate, sunny weather to enjoy, loads of brilliant new films to watch, as well as Wimbledon, an Ashes series and a Lions tour to digest.

"So, to be honest, I don't think we're going to be able to spend much time working on 'Mock The Week', but I'm sure it'll be fine."
